Did u tweak the rake of the fork? It looks signigicantly relaxed than stock. If so, how did you do it?

The rake of the fork? Sorry my english isn't the best but we didn't change anything on the fork besides the angle.

Yes sir, that's what i meant. Rake is the angle of inclination of the steering head, bringing with it the fork. How did you alter it? Did you reposition the steerig head tube on the frame?

looks like they have lowered the forks down significantly compared to the stock positioning. I'm guessing this will affect the angle. I lowered mine about 12mm and it made a big difference in reducing the steering effort required.

Yes i understand that lowering the forks by pulling them up the triple trees will change the angle, it will steepen it (reducing rake and trail). The effect is like as you described, lesser effort to swing the handlebar. But the OP's forks are quite the opposite, has more rake into it

To add to the confusion, the rear wheel is a much bigger size than the stock tire. I don't have the exact size as I am out of the country but its much 'fatter' which might adds to the optical illusion.

Now that really adds to the confusion. If you're putting a fatter tire than stock (>180) on the same wheel width (5.5"), that will somehow raise the rear end in relation to the front, effectively giving the bike a steeper rake. No amount of optical illusion will depict otherwise. But the previous photos show a slacker rake than stock. TBH I'm really confused.
